Default Re: New pedal from Malleus.

I'm glad you re-loaded this thread Andy, this new pedal design sounds very interesting indeed, it features some innovations that I haven't seen on any other pedals, although I'm not a specialist on pedals.

I like the fact that every single parameter can be adjusted, but I would be very tempted to try the beater position in relation to speed and/or power, although very often, once you dial in a setting that suits your playing, you hardly change it, but it's nice to be able to have all variations at hands to do so.

The U clip on the bass drum hoop is a clever design IMO, not only it allows for fast setup and take down, you can adjust slightly the angle, and every time you setup the kit the pedal is exactly in the same position, you only mount the U clamp once too, therefore reducing wear and tear of the BD hoop, clever.

Here's a couple videos I found on this new pedal, it's well explained and worth a look for those interested :)
